Closed to the public.
Plz don't post vid of any scrimmages. I'd love to see some too but even more don't want competitors to have easy access to that.
AE 87 said:I wouldn't worry about it. It's not like we're developing "double-secret" formations and plays that we then show to people who attend a scrimmage. Our diamond set was available on youtube last year. Did that really matter?
I think people got the wrong impression about why scrimmages were closed a few years ago. I think CPJ and staff were more upset about people tweeting and posting injury reports before the staff had a chance to contact the family than about pictures or video.
I'm not sure why this matters so much. By the time we play anybody that matters, we'll have 3 live games worth of film under our belt. I guess we could be working on things we don't plan on using till we have to, is that it?
We see how much it improved our offensive production to close practices and scrimmages. (Or how much it hurt our offense in 2009 and 2010)
Injury posts makes sense; formation posts, not so much.
I don't call one team "owning" another if they barely beat you, even if they've done it several times in a row.That's BS as DCS pointed out. (The threee scrimmage games we open the season with will provide real info, not this Saturday.) I realize that is the excuse they gave but it's just window dressing.
What is the real reason? Because it distracts the players?
We used to have the scrimmages be open and try out new formations. Our formations are nothing revolutionary. But then come fall and opening day, it was same old same old. VT and Miami own us, they don't need any stinking scrimmage tape that has 2% chance of relevance in the fall. We don't beat them and we don't even win the weak sister division of the ACC. They are going to attempt to run the ball down our DL when they have the ball and force us to pass when we have the ball. It isn't that hard.
I recently bought a mini GT football helmet on E-Bay that was signed by CPJ for $7. Unsigned they sell for $25. Does that tell you we have a PR problem?
